Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Finished blasting and shot a coat of primer on the floor.... Was in the zone and didn't think to snap a shot in bare metal... Also received a set of 4" skyjacker lift springs to eliminate the lift blocks.

Trimmed and fit a windshield frame. Hopefully get it welded in tomorrow. I had been dreading this, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Thanks, I have a long way to go... hows your's going?

The bad news is I didn't have time to weld it in today, the good news is I was able to use the shorter frame I had so I still have another windshield frame I can sell to help someone else get theirs done! Silver linings all around.

Probably the old sony camera I use! I think it flashed on the last pic but not the first (later in the day) It is green, not tan.

Well, it certainly looks like you know what you are doing. I'm trying to do everything myself also, and it shows!

Do you have a build thread for this Blazer?

Good luck, Rg

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Blasted and primed the frame... Trying to choose what to top coat it with. I might try some thinned down bed liner sprayed on with an hvlp gun with 2.0 tip for the top coat.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

I got tired of the Blazer Hedman's scraping the ground, ended up with exhaust leak so I got some Chevelle Hedman headers. They're thicker and pretty nice looking. Didn't use the gaskets that came with though. Also swapped out both cross members with cut-out cross members from CPP. Plenty of clearance now.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

There was an old 70s era roll bar in the parts Blazer I bought....in the process of modifying it for a better fit.....
need to finish welding it....sandblast..... and go to powder coat.

I bought a nice new set of 3 point retractable seat belts from MCB Matt one of our vendors...
gonna mount the top link to the roll bar......

rear supports were too short to fit on top of the wheel hubs

Broda, you need to show more pics of this blazer, it's really nice. Did you buy the 67-68 trim from Mar-K? How did you install it? I have it but I'm far from paint so it will be 1 to 13 years before I get it on...
